Elac ub5 vs Kef ls50 or wait for Elac carina?

Recommended Posts

I suspect the fact that LS50's come up for sale regularly is probably due to KEF selling a huge number of them in the first place.

The elac carinas will be about 1200usd so around the same price as the ls50.
The guy that is designing these elacs now is supposed to be a big deal in the hifi world. I cant remember his name though but all the reviews i read had his name all over them.

Oh...was talking about ub5 as in the thread title

I'm not sure that they would sell anymore than Elac.  It would be interesting to see their sales figures because there are a lot of them that come up for resale.

I think kef is available in more stores in this country.
I also think the elac brand name has only been getting real attention sonce this guy andrew jones joined the group. I did some reading on the ub5 and everyone says they sound 4 times as good as the price tag but the build quality is to be desired so lets hope they fixed that with the new ones. Im also going to have a listen to the quads. They look great lets see how they sound.
